Symposium Speaker: David C. Kaelber, MD, PhD, MPH, MS, FAAP, FACP

Dr. Kaelber is a practicing internist, pediatrician, Vice-President of Health Informatics, and Chief Medical Informatics Officer at the MetroHealth System.  Dr. Kaelber is also Professor in the CWRU Department of Internal Medicine with a secondary appointment in the Departments of Pediatrics and Epidemiology and Biostatistics.  MetroHealth is an integrated health system and a primary teaching site for Case Western Reserve University (CWRU).  Since the late 1990s, MetroHealth has been at the forefront in adopting electronic health records to advance high quality clinical care in the Cleveland area.  Under Dr. Kaelber's leadership, MetroHealth implemented Care Everywhere, a health information exchange program that enables MetroHealth to share patient information with other healthcare systems in the United States.  And, in 2011, Dr. Kaelber was instrumental in the development and launch of MyChart, the personal care health record complement of MetroHealth's EHR (Epic).  Dr. Kaelber's research interests are rooted in pediatric populations where he has used EHR data to identify previously under-diagnosed hypertension patients and to monitor obesity trends over time.  This work earned Dr. Kaelber recognition by the American Heart Association as one of the top ten breakthroughs in cardiovascular and stroke medicine in 2007.  More broadly, Dr. Kaelber's research interests span EHRs, clinical decision support, use of EHRs in chronic disease detection and management, personal health records, and medical informatics.
